Evil Eye is an unlockable passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac will occasionally fire a slow-moving eye with infinite range that fires tears identical to Isaac's tears in the direction that Isaac is firing.
    • The chance is affected very slightly by luck and never gets very high.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The eye has the same rate of fire and damage as Isaac.
  • The direction of the eye's tears is affected by the direction the eye is traveling in.
  • The eyes are not treated as familiars and therefore will not synergize with items like BFFS! BFFS!BFFS! Icon.pngIncreases the size and damage of familiars..
  • Eyes disappear when hitting walls, enemies, and obstacles, even if Isaac has piercing or spectral tears.

  • The design is taken from the Nazar Boncuğu (Evil Eye Bead in Turkish). Nazar Boncuğu is a talisman used to ward off evil in Turkey.
  • The blue colour, milky effect, and name may be a reference to "The Tell-Tale Heart", a poem by famous Gothic poet Edgar Allan Poe
